well from what i hear, in order for you to even apply for the match you have to be "Ecfmg certified" which means having step 1 , 2 ck, and cs for us IMG's. In That case giving cs later than may (cuz it takes 3 months for the result to be out) will definitly affect your application. Someone should correct me if i'm wrong.

If you want to be safe its best to have all results ready by September 1st and be ECFMG certified. You can delay it but am afraid it will affect your chances...
